Hi Carol
The problem with option to ask for read a receipt, is that
the person that you email, still has control as to whether they
want you to have the receipt!

Subject: [access-uk] CHANGED EMAIL CLIENT TO THUNDERBIRD

Hi all,

I thought I'd mention, in case any are interested, that I've recently
been forced into changing my email client from Outlook Express, which
I've used for about 13 years. I tried a few but always went back after
a
short time...

Anyway, needs must because I could no longer change the settings and
keep them because I always had to deliberately "kill" Outlook Express
or
it just wouldn't shut down.

Well, I'm glad I've made the change to Thunderbird and here are a few
reasons why!

First - and this is probably my favourite - it's great being able to
back up from one computer to the other so very simply and ensure, by
doing so, you havfe the same settings on each machine.

It is still being actively worked on and there are more options than
in
Outlook Express, e.g. easy to save a message as a file.

The other big plus for me is the Unified setting, so I can choose to
work on all my accounts from one inbox.

On the down side, I'm still looking for an option to ask for a receipt

for one message only. I'm not too keen on the move or account options

when as I get a bit lost sometimes when moving messages or going to
another account and I do miss being able to move messages so quickly
and
with less keystrokes.

All in all, though, I'm well pleased.

Incidentally, I did try Thunderbird a couple of years back and really
just didn't get on with it. This time I was determined and am glad I
have found it much more to my liking now.

If I have missed any functions that you users like particularly,
please
alert me to them in case I haven't yet discovered all the goodies.
Thanks.

Carol P
